His favourite athlete went to the White Home to have fun profitable the Tremendous Bowl — and Trump wasn’t there. And what’s worse? They laughed at him!
Sure, Tom Brady — famed quarterback of the Tremendous Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers — was on the White Home to have fun that victory with President Joe Biden.
And sure, Brady, who isn’t precisely recognized for his comedic timing, trolled Trump’s ongoing insistence that he gained the 2020 election.
“Not lots of people assume that we might have gained. The truth is, I take into consideration 40% of individuals nonetheless do not assume we gained. You perceive that, Mr. President?” Brady stated to laughter.
“I perceive that,” Biden chuckled.
“What a tremendous comeback and win by the Patriots,” Trump tweeted after the New England Patriots gained the 2017 Tremendous Bowl. “Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are whole winners. Wow!”
Trump was much more effusive in a tweet in September 2015: “Congratulations to Tom Brady on one more nice victory- Tom is my pal and a complete winner!” And in 2014: “Tom Brady is an efficient pal of mine, an ideal participant, an ideal man and a complete winner! Implausible comeback win-this is what our nation wants!”
You get the concept. Trump likes Brady. Like, quite a bit.
“The entire political side got here, and I believe I obtained introduced into quite a lot of these issues as a result of it was so polarizing across the election time. It was uncomfortable for me. You possibly can’t undo issues — not that I might undo a friendship — however the political assist is completely totally different than the assist of a pal.”
Whether or not or not Brady and Trump stay buddies is hard to know. What’s not robust to determine is that Trump can be damage and offended not simply that Brady went to the White Home to have fun a Tremendous Bowl with Joe Biden but additionally that Tom Terrific took a direct shot on the “Massive Lie.”
The Level: If you happen to do not assume Trump a) watched this or b) cares deeply about it, effectively then you do not know Trump.
